Charm is a pricey amenity in the world of NYC hotels, which is why I was so pleased to stumble upon Hotel 414. Set in two small apartment buildings connected by a lovely little courtyard, it’s decorated with what can only be called “élan”—the walls are bathed in chic colors, furnishings are cheeky (a chest of drawers that looks like a wooden file cabinet, suede checkerboard headboards, elongated vases with flowers), and rooms, while small, never feel cramped. Breakfast is included in the daily rate and guests have access to a shared kitchen (with fridge, microwave, and two burners). To top it all off, the staff is genuinely gracious. The only downside: There is sometimes noise from guests walking above, so if you’re a light sleeper, ask for a room on a top floor (no elevator, alas).
